We are thrilled to report some great news for James Kronzer, the Barrymore-Award winning Set Designer for Something Intangible.

This Halloween, Jim decorated the North side of the White House! It’s quite an interesting leap to go from 1940s Hollywood to 2009 Washington D.C.

In addition to his work in Philadelphia, Jim designs extensively in Washington D.C. He is the recipient of mulitple Helen Hayes Awards (Washington D.C.’s version of the Barrymore Awards), which is how he received the honor of decorating the first family’s house for Halloween.

Jim said of his walk through at the White House “What an amazing place! I was totally overwhelmed by the history, paintings, sculpture and how friendly everyone was (even the secret service guys!). And how great to hang out on the North Portico for an hour!”

Jim decorated the White House with lots of pumpkins, hay bales and corn stalks, as well as large eyes in the windows. He even colored the fountain orange!

The First Lady, who dressed as Cat Woman, invited over 2000 kids from the DC area to come by and trick or treat.

You can see more pictures and read about Halloween at the White House in this article.

You can learn more about James Kronzer and his designs on his website jameskronzer.com. Who knows what he’ll be up to next!
